Dagoberto Rodríguez (1969, Caibarién, Cuba) presents Planeta de Cristal (Crystal Planet), his first solo exhibition in Miami, recently opened to the public. It collects part of his production from 2020 and confirms the vitality that his already long and successful career preserves, which, with notable international recognition, has spanned the past three decades. The artist was first part, until very recently, of the Los Carpinteros collective, and then, since 2017, he works and exhibits on his own.
Within the framework of the MadBlue festival and quoting the Pixies' song, the artist from Madrid intervenes in the Casa Encendida with thirteen paintings that reproduce the phrase Where is my mind? in nautical alphabet.

Alexandra Trujillo amalgamates technology, nature, art and communication to assemble an immersive artistic experience that is no longer located within the walls of a gallery, but in the Amazon forest. The exhibition includes works in photography, textile installation, video-performance, lighting installation and interactive installation.

ART, NATURE AND TECHNOLOGY - "INTANGIBLE: MEMORY OF A FOREST" IN +ARTE GALLERY
The history of art for the last fifty years has yet to be written. But the NEO POST exhibition, 50 years of geometric painting in Argentina 1970-2020, is a good approach to a fundamental chapter of Argentine art, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Buenos Aires (MACBA). The set of more than 80 artists selected by the curator Rodrigo Alonso reveals trends, nuances, affinities and differences between diverse creators, both historical ones such as Marcelo Bonevardi, Roberto Aizenberg, Kasuya Sakai and María Martorell, and artists in full activity such as Ernesto Ballesteros, Marta Minujín and Pablo Siquier. As a sign of these times, the artist's subjectivity appears, in all its freedom, open to other materialities and forms. It is no longer necessary to react rationally to the illusion, fiction and drama of figurative art. Everything is possible.

An ancient oriental tale tells, with multiple variants, the story of a painter who, having been imprisoned by an arbitrary power, devoted himself to painting a detailed landscape on the prison walls. Day after day the jailers observed the futility of his efforts. But the night he finished it, while everyone was sleeping, the imprisoned artist entered the landscape and was lost in it. Another version says that he painted a door through which he escaped along with other inmates. Spaced Out: Time is Art, curated by Adriana Herrera at the Art Factory Project gallery, brings together a group of paintings, photographs, collages, sculptures and other three-dimensional works created during the pandemic by 21 artists of various nationalities ad based in Miami. The dialogue between multiple visions that configure different exit doors reaffirms the possibility of contrasting the freedom of artistic imagination with the oppressive atmosphere of the present.
